Trivia

The quote from Lord Kilmichael, "there are those who look forward to the day when a Celtic Irishman is as rare in Ireland as a Red Indian in Manhattan", is from a purported editorial in the Times of London written during the famine. James Joyce adapted this in his 1922 novel Ulysses, "... and the Times rubbed its hands and told the whitelivered Saxons there would soon be as few Irish in Ireland as redskins in America."

Goofs

Feeney is described as a Connaught Ranger who served in the Afghan War and then deserted in Calcutta before making his way home. However, the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers) were based in Malta during the Anglo-Afghan War and went to the West Indies in 1847. The Anglo-Afghan war was fought by soldiers of the British East India Company, not by the regular British Army. See more »

A very good film bringing the Irish famine back to life on the screen . It really highlighted how the British really meant to exterminate the Irish back then. If your British I recommend you look at this film showing how the British Empire nearly killed the Irish through hunger and destruction of their homes . Very well acted and disturbing but with some whither well.
